Sprinkler Stop at Old Kent Road Recycling Centre

Old Kent Road: Batteries warning after fire at Veolia's recycling centre - Southwark News There were no injuries, added the London Fire Brigade – but it said the incident could’ve been worse if a sprinkler system hadn’t been in place. Julie Angulo, General Manager for Veolia Southwark, cautioned of the dangers of wrongly disposing batteries, saying: “No batteries should ever be disposed of in household bins, instead they can be brought to the Household Reuse and Recycling Centre for safe disposal.” Ms Angulo said she would also like to “praise the quick action of our staff and take this opportunity to remind residents in Southwark to safely dispose of their waste.” More Information Here
